Recipe Corner: Cinnamon Shake

Recipe by Cornelia Sabrina,  @Cornelia_Sabrina on IG

What would you say if I told you that you can have a milkshake every day? That's right! Regardless if you want to start your day off with this creamy goodness or you enjoy it as a post workout meal, this shake will change your life. 

I tried a few versions of this and frankly, I am particular. I never was into the "ice creams" that tell you "eat the entire container and it has almost no calories" and then you eat it and it is more ice than it is cream. How disappointing. right?

My mission was to make a milkshake that can actually pass as one, creamy, sweet, but still full of good nutrients. I think this will probably be the closest you can get to the real deal. I added Molasses to bring out the brown sugar flavor that you would get from cinnamon rolls, but feel free to leave it out if you try to cut on some carbs in this recipe. It will still be sweet, but the depth of flavor will change. 

Fun fact, Molasses is full of vitamins and even though it is made from sugar and therefore all sugar, I felt less bad adding a little bit of this to the shake. If you are already consuming some sugar, it might as well be a healthier version, right?

This recipe makes one full shake that can be considered as a full meal for some. If you calorie intake is smaller, feel free to cut the recipe in half to make a snack or dessert out of it. 

 

Cinnamon Shake Ingredients


Recipe makes 1 Serving.

Time: 5 minutes



Ingredients:

5.3 oz Cashew Yogurt unsweetened *

1.5 cups Cashew Milk **

2 scoops Tru Supplement Cinnamon Roll

2 cups of Ice Cubes

1/4 tsp Cinnamon

1 tbsp Natural Almond Butter

1 tsp Molasses

10 drops liquid Vanilla Stevia ***

----------------------


1) Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth and creamy. 

If you want to be fancy you can top this with granola, coconut whipped cream, almond butter mixed with cinnamon or just enjoy as is. 


NOTES

* You can use any plant based yogurt or even greek yogurt but of course the flavor might change and the macro breakdown. I used Forager Project Cashew Yogurt unsweetened for this recipe. 

** Any other plant milk will work, I use Cashew Milk because it is more creamy than other plant milks.

***If you use any TRU Dessert Series Protein Powder in this recipe, you will not need stevia and you can adjust the amount to your liking.
